How is Tammy’s focus different?
Tammy has a special interest in sports related injuries which is as a result of being a life-long athletic and physically active person. Throughout her life she has participated on various sports teams, completed several personal short distance runs, a triathlon and adventure racing. Add in her experience as a personal trainer, certifications in Medical Acupuncture, Active Release Techniques (ART), several other biomechanics and athletic related courses along with working along-side a sports physician, has transformed her into a chiropractor with a sport and overuse injury focus.
She strives to educate patients on their condition, and uses the latest available evidence to diagnose and treat a wide variety of conditions. Tammy believes in offering a combination of therapies to decrease painful symptoms in conjunction with stretching and strengthening exercises to build long-term strength and stability. This approach often results in patients getting better faster, and prevents future episodes for more lasting and long-term relief.
She moved to Muskoka permanently in 2009 to find balance between her profession, family and love for an active and healthy lifestyle. She enjoys mountain biking, scuba diving, golfing, trail running with her dogs, boating, travelling abroad, kayaking, back country camping and downhill skiing with her family.
